Worship is more than music. There are a lot of important aspects that go into our worship team — both up front and behind the scenes. If you're musically gifted and want to help lead others in worship, the music team is looking for you! Vocalists and musicians are welcome to share their talents.



Our Worship Team is always seeking musicians, vocalists and singers.  If you would like more information on serving on our Worship Team, please contact divine@trinitymtc.org.
Primary Goals:
  1. Praise and worship God
  2. Teach and encourage believers
  3. Engage and evangelize unbelievers

Objectives (how we can accomplish our goals):

  1. Cultivating personal worship: time with God during the week
  2. Choosing good songs: biblical, gospel-focused lyrics
  3. People singing together: music people can sing and words they understand
  4. Feeling connected to God: engage emotions and heart, not just going through motions
  5. Striving for excellence: preparation reduces distractions
  6. Presenting with humility: limit personal sharing
  7. Considering guests: clear communication and explanations
